Camera keeps draining the attached battery when the camera is off

Every time I charge my battery and leave it attached to the camera the battery is dead when I go to use it again. Everything on the camera is turned off. If I detach the battery and then put it on the camera when I want to use it there is no problem. Something is draining the battery when I leave it attached to the camera.

I had the same problem and a tech told me that the camera will continue to draw from the battery if it is connected. There is no fix other than to disconnect the battery when not in use.

My dcr sr 80 is not charging

Depending on your camera, the battery may be able to be charged on the camera or by using a separate battery charger. Refer to the section below that relates to the charging method you are using.

Charging while the battery is attached to the camera:

  1. Make sure the battery is firmly attached and the AC adapter is securely connected.
  2. If your camera can charge the battery with a USB connection, use the built-in USB cable to connect it to the computer. If you use a USB charger instead of the computer, check the compatibility of the USB charger.
  3. Turn off the camera. The battery is does not charge if the camera is turned on.

Charging using the battery charger:

  1. If the CHARGE lamp does not light or blinks when charging, the terminals may be dirty. Wipe the dust away with a dry cloth and charge the battery again.
  2. Make sure the metal contacts on the battery are free of corrosion.

H0w do i charge the battery

Depending on the camera model, you may have a charging jack on the back of the camera that the charging cable plugs into, or a standalone battery charger for the battery (battery is off the camera and attached to a seperate charger).

I was given a nice sony handycam camcorder. i was told the battery is probley dead

Batteries have a limited life even if they are constantly charged.
Leaving batteries in constant charge will limit their life by causing gas leakage. Once depleted, they must be replaced. There is also a small button battery that keeps unit memory up, if you do not use camera for months at a time, replace this battery also.
Ni-Cad batteries need to be refreshed ony once a month by discharging them fully, then recharging them fully for best performance to erase memory effect

Canon zr100 died: no power

If you have had the camera for a long time, it may have simply died. This may not help, but you could leave the camera on untill the battery loses all power, then try to turn it back on, and see if it works.
